Immunothrombosis Biomarkers for Distinguishing Coronavirus Disease 2019 Patients From Noncoronavirus Disease Septic Patients With Pneumonia and for Predicting ICU Mortality

From Critical Care Explorations  This hypothesis-generating study suggests that the pathophysiology of immunothrombosis differs between coronavirus disease 2019 patients and noncoronavirus disease septic patients.

Altered Heart Rate Variability Early in ICU Admission Differentiates Critically Ill Coronavirus Disease 2019 and All-Cause Sepsis Patients

From Critical Care Explorations  In this descriptive statistical study, heart rate variability measures were found to be statistically different across critically ill patients infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and distinct from bacterial sepsis.

Procalcitonin Exerts a Mediator Role in Septic Shock Through the Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide Receptor

From Critical Care Medicine The authors found that procalcitonin exerts a moderate but harmful effect on disease progression in experimental septic shock, and suggests a potential therapeutic application for calcitonin gene-related peptide receptor inhibitors in sepsis.

Validation of Inflammopathic, Adaptive, and Coagulopathic Sepsis Endotypes in Coronavirus Disease 2019

From Critical Care Medicine The authors tested and found that a previously defined bacterial sepsis endotype classifier recapitulates the same clinical and immunological endotypes in viral sepsis (coronavirus disease 2019).
